Limit Selenium to Avoid Diabetes

Limit Selenium to Avoid Diabetes


March 9, 2017 by David Mendosa
Some health recommendations on the internet suggest that you take supplemental selenium. But if you do, a recent study shows that you could be at an increased risk of developing diabetes.
While a little selenium in our diet is essential, almost all Americans get much more than they need. The National Academy of Medicine sets the Recommended Dietary Allowance for selenium at 55 micrograms per day for both men and women.
In the United States and Canada, the dietary intake of selenium is considerably higher than this, according to studies that the National Academy of Medicine cited. And the risk for selenium deficiency in the United States is negligible, concluded an editorial in the Annals of Internal Medicine published in 2007.
A randomized placebo-controlled trial involving participants from clinical centers in Arizona, Colorado, Texas, and New York, investigated whether taking a selenium supplement of 200 micrograms per day could help prevent colorectal cancer. The Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of the study in its December 2016 issue. Only the abstract is currently free online , but the full text was available when I started to research this post.
The researchers studied the effects of taking a selenium supplement because they thought that it might reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. Instead, however, they discovered that it failed to help reduce that risk.
Worse, the selenium supplement increased the risk of type 2 diabetes. Among the people who were older than 62, the chances of getting Continue reading

My Diabetes Misdiagnosis: Type 1, not Type 2

My Diabetes Misdiagnosis: Type 1, not Type 2


My Diabetes Misdiagnosis: Type 1, not Type 2
Six months ago I became very ill and was rushed to the emergency room. The hospital doctor diagnosed me with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and Type 2 diabetes . Later my primary care physician confirmed that diagnosis. I spent the next few weeks researching the cause of Type 2 diabetes ; I read hundreds of testimonials of people who have reversed their symptoms by eating a strict diet and losing weight. I did everything I could to pursue that goal, and I lost 25 pounds in 2 months (In 5 months total, my BMI went from 24 to 18.5). One month later, I was back in the hospital with DKA. A few days later, I had a third DKA attack!
Still, my latest hospital doctor dismissed the idea that I could be a Type 1 diabetic. When I asked why, she said, Youre definitely Type 2 because your oral medicine previously worked. Fortunately, I had already done a lot of research on this topic, so I explained that its common for oral medication to work for a short while (during the honeymoon phase) in people with a late onset of Type 1 diabetes. I also said that C-Peptide along with GAD antibody tests can determine my type. She was defensive and dismissive.
I certainly made mistakes in my diabetic journey . However, after leaving the hospital, I realized that I was misdirecting all the blame to myself.Actually,most ofmy mistakes werebased on lots of research and testimonials. I was unsuccessful primarily because I was likely misdiagnosed.
Last week I saw a brand new primary care physician, and I requested the Type 1 diabetes tests. At first she said Continue reading

Excessive fruit consumption during the second trimester is associated with increased likelihood of gestational diabetes mellitus: a prospective study
Wu-Qing Huang, Ying Lu, [...], and Cai-Xia Zhang
This study aimed to investigate the association between fruit consumption during the second trimester and the occurrence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). A prospective study with 772 female participants was conducted in China from April 2013 to August 2014. Dietary intake was assessed in face-to-face and telephone interviews using a 3-day food record. GDM was ascertained using a standard 75 g 2 hour oral glucose tolerance test. Multivariable logistic regression was used to estimate odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) after adjustment for various confounders. Of the 772 participants, 169 were diagnosed with GDM during the period under study. Greater total fruit consumption during the second trimester was associated with a higher likelihood of GDM (highest vs. lowest q Continue reading
